We know what a crucial decision you're making when choosing where and what to study, and it is so important you find out as much as you can about the course you're interested in.

Our Open Days are a chance for you to get a feel for the college and Plymouth, to see for yourself just what stands us apart and what we offer both academically and creatively.

You’ll be able to choose from an array of subject talks, meet our graduates and see the new £8M Design Craft building housing state-of-the-art printing, glass, silversmithing, ceramics, painting and drawing studios. 

If you're choosing a BA (Hons) or Masters Degree then Student Finance, Welfare, our Accommodation Team and our Student Union will all be here to give advice and insights, and there'll also be plenty of advice for Pre-Degree students too.
